The Wind Ensemble will conclude its season with four works spanning more than forty years that nevertheless share a dramatic ethos. The earliest is Karel Husa’scataclysmic Music for Prague 1968, a cornerstone of the modern wind band repertory. Just five years later Robert Linn composed Propagula, a set of free variations that grow organically outward from the initial idea in much the same manner as the portentous structure of the Husa. Two decades later James Syler composed Fields, a piece of which the composer states, “asynchronous events and layers of sound create an Ivesian numinous sound world.” And in 2012 Joel Puckett composed Asimov’s Aviary, a work inspired by the micro-aviary (drones) at the research lab at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

Directed by Carolyn Barber, the Wind Ensemble is the university’s premiere concert band. Its select mission is to provide instrumentalists of advanced technical proficiency a pre-professional ensemble experience. With an emphasis on 20th century American compositions, the Wind Ensemble’s repertoire reflects the most recent technical and textural innovations, as well as the rich tradition of wind and percussion music extending back to the Renaissance.
